The Lapeer Community Scholarships were established with donations from Lapeer teachers, staff and community members. $5,000 in scholarships are given each year to Lapeer graduates, and in the 2019-19 year, nine $500 scholarships were awarded to Lapeer High School graduates and one $500 scholarship awarded to a Lapeer Community High School graduate. Students apply through the Common Application distributed in the high school counseling offices in March of the senior year.
Student loans for college are available to all graduates of Lapeer high schools as funds are available. Currently a maximum of $2,000 per year, and $8,000 total, is available at 5% interest. Payments commence six months after graduation or when the loan recipient separates from full-time college enrollment.
Loan applications are available in the LHS and CFI Counseling Offices, the LCS Administration Building, and can be downloaded and printed this site. We will also mail applications, if contacted through our email address or website. We encourage any interested students to apply. For more information, please contact Jerri DePuy, loan secretary or Susan Wilmers, executive secretary of the Lapeer Community Scholarship and Student Loan Fund Board.
For decades, the primary goal of the organization has always been to assist Lapeer Community Schools graduates with college expenses through scholarships and low interest loans.
If you are not a recent graduate seeking a loan or scholarship, maybe the reader is in a position to help youngsters cover the cost of their college tuition. Please contact Susan Wilmers or any of our board members to determine how you can impact the lives of our Lapeer young people.
The Board Members for the 2018-19 and 2019-20 school years, including Superintendent Matt Wandrie, are Art Sieting, President, Bob Dennany-VicePresident, Pete Batistoni-Treasurer, Sally Miller, Ken Janczarek, Doug Lindsay, Adam Schlusler, and Jennifer Taylor.
